Product description


`Intelligent, thought-provoking fiction that you want to keep reading. I completely bought into Sophie. I wanted to give her a hug. It's a couple of days since I finished the book, but I keep wondering how she's getting on. She's not alone though - all the characters come off the page and into your life. It's a great story too: I read it in a couple of sittings.' - The Book Bag//`'Beta Mum' is a brilliantly written, engaging novel, I literally can't put it down. I hope it's adapted into a TV series or film asap.' - Vicki Psarias, Honest Mum.//`This is a must-read. It is brilliant, witty, fun, sad and thought-provoking. I couldn't put it down. There were also plenty of things I could relate to and recognise. I wish there were a sequel.' - Karin Thyselius-Schumacher,`What can I say? I absolutely LOVED this book! It made laugh out loud, cringe and hold my breath. It's so relatable. I think there's scope for this to become a series and I for one cannot to wait to see if it does!' -Purple Book Stand//'Oh how I have fallen in love with 'The Beta Mum'. It's clever, funny and captures the realities of the mummy circuit in all its glory. I laughed, I cried, it's heart warming and raw. It's utterly brilliant and I hope one day to see it on the big screen!' - The Curious Life of A Mummy//`Keep an eye out for blogger and new author Isabella Davidson. Her debut novel, 'The Beta Mum: Adventures in Alpha Land' is funny, relevant, entertaining, a bit suspenseful and very reminiscent of Sophie Kinsella and Liane Moriarty's love child...if they were to ever have know in chick-lit land.' - Jennifer Castro, Book Blogger//'I came away from the Beta Mum feeling like I'd been through it all myself and not quite ready for it to end. From the marvellous to the sublime, I wanted to read more.' - Me Annie Bee, Mum Blogger//'This book is downright brilliant. I was hooked from page one and it didn't take me long to finish because I could hardly put it down. Isabella is funny, with sparkling wit, and her fun writing style shines through.' - Chick Lit Uncovered//`Forget politics...this is a world that's more dog-eat-dog! 'The Beta Mum' is the hilarious fish-out-of-water tale of Sophie, a Canadian, who ends up pitted against the rich, socialite mums of west London. Isabella Davidson's debut novel really astutely follows her escapades as she tries to settle in and make friends, while finding her own place in this new, glossy world. Highly recommend!' - Ex- editor, Harlequin books//'This book was stunningly well written and had me hooked from the get go.' - The Most Sublime//`I loved this fictional story that has a gallery of fascinating super rich mums...Book loving friends, you have to read this book with `rich' characters you will want to read about.' - Suzanne Marsh, IReadNovels//`I really enjoyed this book. It was funny and observant, and I really empathised with Sophie and her plight...Davidson has some really good insights into marriage after children and the effect that virtual life has on one's real life. Hopefully this is the first of many books for her.' - Kaci Loves Books//'I really enjoyed this book and raced through it reading it in one day...Descriptive and well written, I'll look forward to more from this author.' - MrsBloggsBooks//'Best summer read? Best warning for mummy bloggers? Best insight into Alpha Mum behaviour in London? Yes to all. If you read, follow or write for mum blogs, then you need to get your hands on 'The Beta Mum: Adventures in Alpha Land' as soon as it comes out!' - Mama Chic
